Shockwave therapy is a direct method to relieve pain and activate healing. Technology quality is very important.  At the Nardella Clinic in Calgary, our naturopaths only use the Swiss DolorClast device—the shockwave therapy device most often cited in research literature as having provided significant benefit in a wide range of treatment indications.  The benefits are significant:

  • Our shockwave treatment relieves pain in more than 80 percent of patients after three treatments
  • Proper shockwave treatment is a substitute for surgery in many cases.

Through delivering a high-energy shock wave via the skin a number of molecular and cellular mechanisms act on the musculoskeletal system.  The therapeutic benefits are significant:

  • Reduced chronic pain sensations
  • Restriction of neurogenic inflammation
  • Stimulation of mesenchymal stem cells promoting healing
  • Growth factors are released, regenerating healthy tissue
  • Increased blood circulation in the treated tissue
